He may never suffer from a bacteriological infection but you could see his Blood Pressure was working on a really big aneurism for him.
Quite possible, but as I recall, the one that I had read, had been published in the Newspaper mid, to late 90's.
(Possibly from Mc Gill University??)

One stat I had heard was something along the lines of if you cleaned all of the bacteria off of yourself, (your skin) 'cept one, within 24 hrs, you would have the equivalent of the number of humans on the planet, as bacteria, back (reborn) on your skin. Neat eh??

Sung to a popular tune, about a man reverting to 5-Gallon buckets in order to avoid unsanitary mist-spraying toilets.

Gimme Back My Buckets
(Allen Collins -- Ronnie VanZant -- BoulderHead)

Commodes are strange when they're flushin', yes indeed
Well I've seen the lime deposits and the water vapour's been on me
But I keep on workin' 'em out like a workin' man doo-doo
Started using using tidy-bowl, and I hope that you are too

(chorus)
Gimme back my buckets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't flushin' it down 'cause I done had my fun
Don't wanna see no mist droplets flung
Gimme back my buckets

Sweet sprayin' toilets done run my immunity system down
And I've injested enough "aerosol" to float a battleship around
So I'm leavin' this game one flush ahead of you
But you will not see me smile 'cause my teeth have all turned blue

(chorus)
Gimme back my buckets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't flushin' it down 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more mist droplets flung
Gimme back, gimme back my buckets
Oh, put 'em back... where they belong

Been working the handle since I turned seventeen
Then I read this poll, and it made me lose my dream
Since I brought my buckets back, I'm feelin' better everyday
Tell all those toilet flushers, better get out of my way

(chorus)
Gimme back my buckets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't flushin' it down, 'cause I done had my fun
Don't wanna see no mist droplets flung
Gimme back, gimme back my buckets
Oh put 'em back where they belong
Gimme back my buckets

Before I had kids, I left the toilet in whatever state was most convenient. But my 2 year old is fascinated by toilet water. He orinally wanted to just play with it, but lately he's been trying to give himself a "swirly".

First of all, Boulderhead, you need a hobby! You've got way too much time on your hands. Cool song though. I like the teeth turning blue line.

My wife and I made an arrangement a long time ago that we would both put the seat and the cover down. Sometimes I do it before, sometimes after flushing. We also have a dog and this is a good way to assure that she does not help herself to a drink now and then.

Njorl, I love kids, but there are times when I am sooo glad I just have a dog.

once, someone i knew (not me i swear) mummified the a public toilet in oodles of toilet paper and then soaked it all in their urine. whenever i get in to that "dark place" i think about that and it brings me back to the light.

i was thinking of starting a related thread with a poll: which hand do you wipe your *** with? there would be two options: right hand and left hand.

then, after a few people answer the poll, i'd say, "yuck! i don't use my hand, i use toilet paper."

All the toilet seats were stolen from police headquarters.
The police have nothing to go on.

Police are pretty sure. Whoever it was, the criminals will surely be plunged into prison.

Ya mean the police are going to scrub out the ring, then flush them down the toilet??

Do you think they can handle the paperwork??

If not, they will be in deep doo-doo, and someone will have to come along and mop up after them.

There are/were societies where it was right hand eat, left hand wipe. That's why it's not polite to eat with your left hand when eating finger food in India. (I'm not kidding.)

Having had problems with clogging recently, I'm a close-post flush, but the option 'leave it the way you found it' is missing.

It's implied in the other responces, could easily be added in your responce, and heck! gotta leave something for you to say, NO???
